Like many on the board I've had both the mustard color relay and LKM out and resoldered them both.
As I recall, the only way to get these out is to
pull. What you may try is a little electrical
"tuner" cleaner/lubricant at the base of each
relay. Use a arysol can with narrow plastic tube
attached to the atomizer. I would wiggle each
relay as you pull slightly and use a constant
pulling force. Don't think you want to wedge any-
under each relay as that could harm the board.
Persistance is the I recall, I used a
few choice words when I was removing mine.
Good Luck,

I was tring to remove the mustard relay and the LKM device from the fuse box in order to clean them. However, both of them will not come out. I pulled on both of them however with no success. I am afraid that if I force them out, I may damage something. Should I just pull even harder or what? Any advice on loosening and getting the mustard and LKM devices out without damaging the contents of the fuse box???? Help?
